Newcastle were interested in Aiden McGeady when he was at Celtic way back in 2008, according to our archives, and there is news from Russia (with love?) today that Newcastle may again be one of the interested clubs in the 27 year-old Ireland International winger.
Aiden McGeady – Newcastle could be interested in this player
The player left Celtic back in the summer of 2010 for £9.5M, and at the time that was the highest transfer fee for a player leaving Scotland and he singed a four and a half year deal at Spartak Moscow.
Since that time he;s played 92 times for the Russian clubs with 13 goals and 29 assists, and it looks as though Spartak are willing to sell the player in January, when he will have one year left on his contract.
Moscow Spartak’s Sporting Director, Roman Askhabadze, has talked about a possible move for his player:
“Over the winter window, if we get an offer which suits Spartak then Aiden McGeady will go – but if a suitable offer doesn’t come in, he’ll be with us until the end of his contract.”
And it seems that McGeady is unhappy in Moscow and wants to move to England, and he has been sidelined in the Russian team, and is not currently playing at the moment.
And that could well be why Spartak Moscow will sell him in January – if they get a decent offer for the Irish International, who was born in Denny, Scotland.
His grandparents are Irish and he chose to play for Ireland rather than Scotland at full International level, even though when he made that decision he was playing for Celtic. 🙁
The Scots couldn’t have been too happy at that decision.
This lad could be a decent signing for Newcastle, but the fee would need to be low and around £2M to £3M for the Magpies to be interested in taking the player.
